First Post


This is my first (test) post here. I’m quite excited about the opportunity to lead a blog on my beloved Frontline website – about my favorite topic on journalism and trauma. Hope my enthusiasm will cover for my mistakes that you have to forgive – I’m not a native English speaker (I’m pretty good in Russian – but I guess it’s less popular around here).

The topic may sound quite dreadful – but trauma is in fact a quite unpleasant thing. And we better deal with it with more knowledge and care than just try to ignore it or its influence on our lives or journalists profession.

First, I would like to refer to my “alma mater” in these issues, the Dart Center on Journalism and Trauma, where you can find lots of interesting and useful materials and discussions.
